    Billionaire hedge fund manager Tom Steyer is hoping an additional donation of $10 million to two of his organizations, ones with goals to impeach President Donald Trump, will help flip the House in favor of the Democrats in November. Steyer made his announcement Monday in a livestream for participants of his Need to Impeach organization, which claims on its website to have nearly 6 million voters signed on as of press time. This $10 million donation will add to the $110 million he has already pledged ahead of November’s elections, Bloomberg reports.

    Democratic billionaire donor Tom Steyer said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is wrong for saying his push to impeach President Trump is helping Republicans. Steyer pushed back against Pelosi’s claim during an interview with BuzzFeed News that aired Sunday night, calling Trump “reckless and dangerous and lawless.” “This is a historic time,” Steyer said. “If you step back for one second and think about this president, the most corrupt president in American history, somebody who is breaking the law on a daily basis.” Pelosi warned Democrats earlier this year against pursuing impeachment efforts against Trump, saying it could hurt...

    GOP Rep. Devin Nunes was secretly recorded telling supporters that the Republicans have to keep control of the House to protect President Trump in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, according to a report. “If [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions won’t unrecuse and Mueller won’t clear the president, we’re the only ones,” Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said at a private fundraiser July 30, NBC News reported Wednesday. “Which is really the danger. … I mean we have to keep all these seats,” he continued. “We have to keep the majority. If we do not keep the majority, all...

    Democrats who are pushing for the impeachment of President Donald Trump will have $110 million to spend on the cause, thanks to the efforts of left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer. Steyer’s organizations, NextGen America and Need to Impeach, will also have a combined 1,000 employees and 2,000 staffers as they take the case for impeachment to voters in November, according to Politico. Though House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has discouraged impeachment talk, grass roots Democrats favor the idea. Politico reports: Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million in 2018, making the billionaire investor the largest single source of...

    While Republicans continue to hide their heads in the sand and allow Donald Trump to run roughshod over the Constitution and reality in general, Rep. Auntie Maxine Waters (D-CA) continues to call out Vladimir Putin’s puppet on his lies, hypocrisy and racism. This time around the never scared congresswoman teed off on the laziest president in American history during an interview on MSNBC after she was asked about Trump’s threat to shut down the government if he doesn’t get funding for his border wall. You know, that same border wall he promised Mexico was going to pay for and is...

    The Washington Post just with a story with this headline: “ impeachment odds hit record after Helsinki, says Irish bookmaker.” Seriously now? This is where the all-courts-press from the left to impeach President has headed — to a bookie operation in Ireland named Paddy Power that operates as the biggest phone-in betting outlet for both the Emerald Isle and the United Kingdom? Wow. That’s some reach. “The odds is impeached are now 2 to 1, or 33 percent, [Paddy Power spokesman Lee] Price told The Post, compared with 4 to 1, or 20 percent, on Monday before the news conference,”...

    Speaker Paul Ryan held a press conference Thursday and said he does not support the impeachment of DAG Rod Rosenstein. Paul Ryan said he supports oversight of the Executive branch but refuses to actually do something about Rosenstein’s continued stonewalling and intimidation tactics. “Do I support impeachment of Rod Rosenstein? No I do not,” Paul Ryan said to a reporter.

    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended his top deputy Thursday after a handful of congressional Republicans moved this week to impeach him. Speaking in Boston, Sessions said he has the "highest confidence" in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and described him as "highly capable" when asked about the impeachment effort. A group of 11 House conservatives on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Rosenstein, who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation because Sessions has recused himself.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions fiercely defended his deputy Rod Rosenstein on Thursday morning after a group of House conservatives introduced an impeachment resolution against him. “My deputy, Rod Rosenstein, is highly capable,” Sessions said at an event in Boston when asked to address the impeachment efforts. “I have the highest confidence in him. You probably know that not only did he go to the Wharton School of Business, but he graduated from Harvard right here in this area.”

    Well, we shall see today, who has the profile-of-courage, backbone and who does not, who seeks truth, facts & honesty, and, who does not, choosing to continue DOJ/FBI cover-ups, closed doors, hidden biased information, etc. Both Democrats & Republicans should vote as one, all 425 members, to impeach Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein for failing to heed and provide information requested and required for Congressional oversight over the DOJ/FBI. Any Republican or Democrat House member that votes against impeaching Rosenstein has voted to deny the American people and the Congress of the USA, requested oversight, information & facts, who by...

    President Trump's performance this past week aside Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki sparked outrage among congressional Democrats in all ways but one: There's been no surge in support for impeachment. Instead, Democratic leaders have tamped down the impeachment push in the name of political pragmatism, fending off — for now — an effort by animated caucus liberals to escalate their oust-Trump campaign following his broadly maligned joint press conference with Putin in the Finnish capital on Monday. Not only is impeachment highly unlikely under a GOP-controlled Congress, the leaders argue, but it could undermine the chances of Democrats winning...

    Did US President Donald Trump commit treason in Helsinki when he met Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin? Should he be impeached? That is what his opponents claim. Former president Barack Obama’s CIA director John Brennan accused Trump of treason outright. AP reporter John Lemire placed Trump in an impossible position. Noting that Putin denied meddling in the 2016 elections and the intelligence community insists that Russia meddled, he asked Trump, “Who do you believe?” If Trump had said that he believed his intelligence community and gave no credence to Putin’s denial, he would have humiliated Putin and destroyed any...

    VENTURA, Calif. - At least one person wasn't willing to honk a car horn in support of Trump Protesters in Ventura on Wednesday evening. The passenger of a compact car driving by leaned out the window and flipped the bird with both hands. The rude gesture didn't stop protestors from rallying for democracy. They lined Victoria Ave. near the Ventura County Government center and waved a variety of signs. One sign held up behind a Trump impersonator said "TRE45ON."

    The chances that President Trump will be impeached are rising, according to one Irish bookmaker, one day after Trump refused to denounce Russian meddling in the 2016 election following a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Paddy Power increased the likelihood of Trump being impeached on Tuesday from 8-1 to 2-1, according to Yahoo News. The news outlet first reported that the betting company also increased the likelihood of Trump being impeached this year, from 12-1 to 8-1....

    Impeachment seems to be on the mind of liberal historian Jon Meacham lately. In May, Meacham predicted that a newly elected Democrat House will impeach President Donald Trump as a "season finale." Meacham's I-word obsession returned to Meacham on Tuesday's Morning Joe when he suggested that Trump somehow committed treason at the Helsinki Summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Meacham, with unintentional irony, cited former CIA Director John Brennan, who admittedly voted for a Communist candidate for president during the height of the Cold War, for making his treason case [emphasis mine]:

    Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) said on Tuesday that President Trump's performance at a controversial news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin warrants impeachment – and that he would vote to do so. "Standing on stage in another country with the leader of another country who wants to and has sought to undermine this country, and to side with him over the United States - if I were asked to vote on this I would vote to impeach the president," O'Rourke said, according to The Dallas Morning-News. "Impeachment, much like an indictment, shows that there is enough there for the case...

    A group of army generals rolling tanks and troops into Seoul to seize power. Paratroopers firing at large crowds calling for democracy. Tanks and armored vehicles stationed at universities to intimidate student protesters. Such scenes of military intervention in South Korea have been nonexistent since the country achieved democracy in the late 1980s. But revelations this past week of a document showing the military drafted plans to mobilize troops to suppress protests last year have struck a nerve among people in one of Asia’s most vibrant and wealthiest democracies. Some allege the plans even included a scenario for a coup....
